Manchester United and Arsenal are falling behind Premier League rivals Chelsea in the pursuit of a 17-year-old Brazilian sensation called Malcolm.

Full name Malcolm Silva, the Corinthians starlet has been making waves in his native Brazil and, according to the Sunday Express, is the subject of a £20million transfer tussle between Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger.

However, the report claims the Stamford Bridge club have stolen a march on their rivals out of Old Trafford and Emirates Stadium for the attacking players’ signature.

Barcelona are also credited with an interest in Silva and the report claims he has been tipped to emulate his compatriot Neymar, who has grown in stature since making the trip from Brazil to Barça last year.

Despte being so young, Silva has already made 25 appearances for Corinthians under former Brazil manager Mano Menezes and is expect to make an impact on the international stage in 2015.

Arsenal and Manchester United may well still have a chance to convince the youngster to sign for them, but the reports claims they will have to contend with the problem that Silva has decided he wants a move to the Blues if he chooses the Premier League
